Airbnb Shower Essentials
Airbnb guests have come to expect certain shower essentials to be provided by hosts. While some of these are listed under the amenities part of the listing and hosts can be transparent about what is provided, guests tend to be disappointed if Airbnb shower essentials are not provided.
It is important that your guests enjoy their experience and a shower devoid of basic essentials is sure to leave them dissatisfied. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much effort or expense to keep them clean and happy!
A basic shampoo is all that’s necessary. Depending on the space in your shower and the type of guest experience you are going for, consider either a pump style shampoo (I prefer Dove brand shampoo and conditioner) or compact individual hotel style shampoos for your guests.
Superhost Tip: Pump bottles for your shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion are convenient for your guests, help avoid spilling and overuse of supplies, and allows you to purchase in bulk!
It is best to pick a conditioner that is complementary to your shampoo by brand and style. This will keep your theme consistent and professional without compromising the individual character of your Airbnb. The travel sized Eco Amenities conditioner bottles have a clean and sleek look that will go with almost any bathroom decor.
Superhost Tip: Keep an extra set of these shower essentials under the sink! If your guests run out, they will find more and won’t have to go through the hassle of contacting you!
Bar Soap or Body wash
You guessed it, stick with the same brand and size if at all possible! It’s easy to find like-branded products on Amazon by checking out the related items listed on each product page. If you haven’t gotten Amazon Prime, Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial today!
If you can match the body lotion to your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash then do so, but this is less important. My guests really enjoy Dove body lotion! If you’ve chosen to go with hotel style essentials, Eco lotion bottles are an inexpensive option that you can buy in bulk to reduce your expenses.
Superhost Tip: Arrange your shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap neatly near the sink with a washcloth or bath sponge for an appealing presentation!
Washcloths or Bath Sponges
While guests may have individual preferences for either washcloths or bath sponges, offering at least one of the two is very necessary. Amazon Basics washcloths definitely do the trick and inexpensive too! For bath sponges, a low cost bulk supply is best to save money!
Supplying these five Airbnb shower essentials in your guest bathrooms should be considered a bare minimum. A shower that is stocked with these basic necessities will definitely meet your guest expectations and set you up for a 5 star review!
